Reviews & Interviews
A sexually diverse Utopian hangout is difficult to come by, seemingly requiring a consolidation of improbabilities for such a scene to unfold. A support group of active participants must also be on hand to nurture mutually beneficial relationships while filtering out toxic personalities… Luckily… adventure, optimism, and love is what Dr. Susan Block is all about…Patients become fans, and fans become evangelists…”
“Tradition holds that if we want to have sex, we’ve got to partner up. Once you find your mate, you can place A into B to create C. But what happens when you add someone to the party? And then another. And another, and another…”
Dr. Diana Wiley interviews Dr. Susan Block on The Bonobo Way | Love, Lust & Laughter on the Progressive Radio Network
“Her book is written in a provocative, humorous and engaging style that makes science fun and ecology erotic! Dr. Suzy weaves stories, studies, theories and fantasies into a practical path of action so that one can release one’s “inner bonobo.”
“How Getting Loud in Bed — Like, Really Loud — Changed My Sex Life Forever” with Dr. Suzy by Jill Hamilton | Cosmopolitan
“I was way into this one (though I’d maybe pick a different phrase than “let ‘er rip”…) because I find sex sounds all kinds of hot. When sex makes you so incoherent that there’s little you can do but communicate via choked out cries, well, it’s the best.”
“The Big ‘Secret’ to Female Ejaculation and the G-Spot: How All Women Can Experience It” by Carrie Weisman with Sex Therapist Dr. Susan Block | Alternet & Salon
“The pursuit of sexual pleasure has always been clouded by the fact that it can end in pregnancy. But it’s important to be reminded that, like men, women have sex just as much for recreation as for procreation. There’s something reassuring about knowing that. And sometimes, it just feels nice to give as good as you get.”
“7 Things about foreplay sexperts really want you to know” featuring Dr. Susan Block by Catherine Donaldson-Evans | SheKnows
“Too often, couples forgo foreplay altogether and speed ahead to intercourse. And in doing so, they may be setting themselves up for failure. “The word ‘foreplay’ sounds like something subordinate, like an appetizer with intercourse as the main course,” says Dr. Susan Block, a sex therapist known as “Dr. Suzy” and the author of The Ten Commandments of Pleasure.”
I Interviewed Sex Therapist Dr. Suzy at Her 22nd Wedding Anniversary Party by Alison Stevenson | Vice
Dr. Susan Block, better known as Dr. Suzy, is a sex therapist based in Los Angeles. She has been in the business of sex for several decades. Her works spans from hosting her own radio show and television show, to authoring several books and co-creating a holiday known as “Eros Day.” To say that Suzy loves sex is an understatement.
Saving the Bonobos May Very Well Save the Peaceful Animal Who Lives Within You by Dr. SerenaGaia Anderlini D’onofrio | Poly Planet Gaia
“Her research on Bonobos proves that the kind of amorous behaviors many of us believe to be the exclusive mark of human love are actually natural in a much wider sense. For instance, Bonobos practice their own style of French kissing, they make love face to face with abundant eye-to-eye gazing, they take care of each other when in need, while also enjoying abundant mutual grooming. Romantic, no?”

Ever wake up in the AM wondering how things got so steamy during your dreaming hours? “Just because you’re not awake doesn’t mean your libido is taking a rest,” says Susan Block, PhD, a Los Angeles-based sexologist and founder of the Dr. Susan Block Institute for the Erotic Arts and Sciences. “Dreams are a way for your subconscious to unpack everything that’s affecting your life, and often, dreams about sex aren’t literal. Instead, they could symbolize problems, desires, and hopes in all facets of your life.”
“The Bonobo Way is a delightful, insightful look at how our closest genetic cousins embrace all aspects of sexual pleasure, showing us how masturbation, bisexuality, gender equality, sexual diversity and all other forms of sexual expression are not only natural, but vital to keeping the peace. Like we said back in the sixties, “Make love, not war!”
Author of Orgasms for Two, Betty Dodson Ph.D
“Dr. Block is well known for her popular talk show, The Dr. Susan Block Show, and runs a successful sexologist empire which includes a wealth of educational information, sex therapy, not to mention everything you might need to know about bonobo apes!”

From Ferguson to Washington, murder and mayhem are heating up the land, much of it committed by officers sworn to protect and serve their communities, but too often behaving like military forces in enemy territory complete with combat gear and tanks in the street stoking the flames of discontent.
What to do? It’s complicated, of course, but the only real, viable antidote to hate is love, and the most effective remedy to all this violence across America is “Sex Across America.” That also happens to be the name of the pet project and passion of my featured guests on this show, porn star power couple (married 14 years), AVN Hall of Famers and one of the most loving, community-oriented, dynamic duos I know, Alexandra Silk and Luc Wylder.
Alexandra, a.k.a. Alex, a.k.a. Silky, is probably best known for her iconic role as the saucy “bailiff” on Playboy TV’s Sex Court (swear on her bubble butt to tell the truth!). “All rise” indeed. Raised in an orthodox Jewish home, she rose to the top of the porn industry without her devout family even knowing what she does. Truly bonoboësque in form and spirit, Silky loves to get naked and play… and squirt! We start this live broadcast with a clip from her virgin DrSuzy.Tv appearance in the Porn Star Penis Dialogues after-party when she squirted all over the Speakeasy bar! By the end of this show, I’ve got her gushing again, and this time her fragrant Holy Water soaks a towel with the American flag; now that’s what I call Sex Across America! This show is streaming in more ways than one. Not only is Silky a sex bomb, she’s also a certified sex surrogate, and she exudes a very special warmth and genuine empathy, like the real bonobos, channeling her effervescent sexuality into giving pleasure and helping others.
Luc is a gentleman and a gentle man, the Dom in their D/s relationship, whose solidity gives his hot wife the freedom to “go bonobos” without shame. Luc is now celebrating the rise of his adult video company Fallen Angel to the top of Adam & Eve’s most popular list. His biopic of Christian Mann, the last in-depth interview given by the late great porn industry maven before he died, was the highlight of Mann’s recent memorial gathering. “If a terrorist wanted to take out all the leaders of adult entertainment, they could have done it right there,” Luc points out.
Yes, death with a capital D keeps rearing its heavy head in between all the light fun and sweet sex on this show. We bid adieu to a few other people we know, as well as folks the media makes us feel like we know, watching Robin William’s amazing conversation with Koko the Gorilla and Laura Bacall giving new meaning to the term blow job. I say farewell to my eldest cousin Bobby Alper, the first of my generation of cousins to go. And we mourn Michael Brown, the unarmed teenager shot and killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson for what appears to be no good reason at all.
Of course, death isn’t always a bad thing. For instance, Luc gives us the scoop on how the unrealistic, potentially lethal-to-the-California-porn-industry statewide condom Bill AB-1576 just died in committee. Thank god and the goddess that the lubricated rubber of reason cockblocked this legislation in the California Senate, for now…
Back to life, sex and fun: Luc does non-alcoholic Bonoboville Communion from Silky’s ample naturals. Then Silky drops to her knees and crawls across the floor to take hers from my clit! I reward her with a Doc Johnson Pocket Rocket (Drop Pocket Rockets, Not Patriot Missiles!) that she proceeds to ride to the sexual moon.
With 15 minutes to go, Raw Vegan Slave Goddess Cici joins the mini-orgy, along with her friends, tantric energy healer Scott Smith of “Sex Positive Ventura” and the mysterious amrita-spraying MILF, Tina Romantica. After a bared boobalicious Dirty Tequila-infused Bonoboville Communion, Scott demonstrates his fingering technique on a very juicy Tina who squirts all over her chair, as Silky keeps gushing over my hand. With all the Holy Water shooting and dribbling over the terrycloth stars and stripes, it’s very WET Sex Across America indeed. Stream DrSuzy.Tv to see what I mean by “streaming” or watch from Bonoboville when you join.
More Shout-Outs to…
Candida Royalle: Another key Sex Across America player, recently censored by Facebook, is now making a biopic about her life as Golden Age porn star and pioneer erotica director.
Condomania: Even though it’s good to hear Bill AB-1576 went down, whether you’re going down or in, we advocate condom use whenever there’s any doubt as to the health of your partner or sterility of your sex toy, and Condomania has all the best condoms.
CatalystCon: Never been to one of these, but Luc invited me and it’s right in LA, so maybe I’ll be going this year, which means maybe you should go too!
Neil deGrasse Tyson: Great meeting one of my media heroes at Friday night’s Emmys party! I was starry-eyed… He was starry-tied… From Cosmos to bonobos, kudos to Dr. Tyson for standing up for science on the likes of Fox-TV!
#JewsandArabsrefusetobeenemies: This is the only side we have any interest in being on in the horrendous Holy Land situation. Let’s stop the killing and have more SEX Around the World. Let’s disarm ourselves through our natural, bonoboësque lust for the stranger, a.k.a., the “enemy.” Let’s give peace, through pleasure, a chance. Amen and Awomen.
“It was through Real Sex that I first became aware of Dr. Susan Block (“Dr. Suzy” to her fans) and her work as one of the country’s leading sexologists. As I would later discover, she is a dedicated First Amendment activist, private therapist, and, along with her husband Max, hostess to some of the wildest Jewish holiday parties imaginable: Bacchanals in which the traditional stories that make up the foundation of holidays like Passover and Hanukkah are celebrated with such hedonistic abandon it would make that other Jewish sexologist (…paging Dr. Ruth Whatshername…) blush.”

Susan M. Block, Ph.D., a.k.a. “Dr. Suzy,” world-renowned sexologist and leading champion of sex education, erotic freedom and the highly endangered bonobo apes, is perhaps best-known for her groundbreaking specials on HBO. Host of the famous—and slightly infamous—Dr. Susan Block Show, broadcasting on radio, cable TV and the Internet for over 30 years, Dr. Block is a magna cum laude graduate of Yale University with a Ph.D. in sexology from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality, and a co-founder of Sex Week at Yale, inspiring similar college-student-based sex education conferences around the world. A best-selling, award-winning author, Dr. Block’s latest book, The Bonobo Way: The Evolution of Peace through Pleasure, has been acclaimed for its paradigm-shifting vision, humor and sound advice by journalists, sexperts, statesmen, primatologists and porn stars.
Director of the Dr. Susan Block Institute for the Erotic Arts & Sciences, she is a top contributor to the Wiley-Blackwell International Encyclopedia of Human Sexuality, authoring “extended explorations” on “Sexual Fetishes,” “Phone Sex” and “Striptease,” as well as definitive articles on “Spanking” and “Cuckolding.” Recently, she wrote the foreword to the award-winning Ecosexuality collection, and her writings on sex, politics and culture have been published in a variety of publications from Counterpunch to Cosmo to her own Journal. But she’ll never quit her “day job” as a therapist in private practice, helping thousands of individuals, couples and groups, from California to Saudi Arabia, to explore, understand, discipline, enhance, share and enjoy their sexuality.
Married for over 23 years to Pr. Maximillian R. Lobkowicz, pioneering publisher of the first “reader-written” media such as the LA Star, Love, Hate, Finger, The Brentwood Bla Bla and Beverly Hills, the Magazine, the two founded and direct Bonoboville, both a new social-media and a real “socialist/capitalist,” pro-sex community in Los Angeles, known for producing the first reality-based sexuality programs, convivial “Speakeasies,” bonoboësque gatherings, erotic art exhibitions, bacchanalian soirées, life-changing lectures, sex-educational seminars, and priceless moments of communal ecstasy, with a portion of all proceeds going to help save the highly endangered real bonobos in the wild.
